Just enjoy the place with the statue more than enjoying the statue. On the place there's a lovely spot to have a drink while you read about the statue.

As others have mentioned he was a well known Hussite commander and the circles around the statue show the dates of all of his victories. He remained undefeated until his death in 1424.

Zizka was the commander of a faction of the Czech Hussite movement based in the town of Tabor. Despite blindness he was an inspiring and very successful commander. The monument depicts him with his disabilities.
